The Jason Bourne actor has been crowned one of the 'sexiest men alive' by People magazine but his handsome good looks are more common than you'd think.

Reddit user, coffeeandtrout, shared a photo of his parents' wedding in 1961, which he captioned: "I think my dad looks exactly like Matt Damon".

That's probably an understatement.

He said the picture was taken in 'suburban Seattle' and his parents remained happily married until his mother passed away last year.

"Dad's still trying to adjust. They were great together," he added. 

His father is the ultimate Damon doppelganger. Although, according to a comment on Reddit, he's an inch or two taller. (Damon is 5'10", according to his IMDb, while coffeeandtrout's dad was 6'0" and is now around 5'11".)

Check out for yourself: the photo on the left is coffeeandtrout's dad, while the photo on the right is Matt Damon in 2007 with his wife Luciana Barosso.

The photo caused a stir online, causing people to do a double take.

'Duderds' wrote: 'The DNA test results are in... you are Matt Damon!'

Some also compared his mother to actress Elizbeth Taylor.

"There's no way you are ugly with those parents," wrote 'Rapturecity113'.

While another added: "Sure hope you scored those genes."
